Do you remember this movie?
It was a Pixar movie that came out in 2008. Here is a link to Pixar’s website about the movie.
I put this one in my top 5 animated movies of all time.
But it was not until I had watched it several times that I realized the name, Wall-E, was an acrostic.
A quote from Pixar’s website proclaims, “WALL•E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) is the last robot left on Earth, programmed to clean up the planet, one trash cube at a time. However, after 700 years, he’s developed one little glitch…”
I want to share another acrostic with you. H.E.L.P.
As in, God has help available for you and I but it comes in various forms. I took the liberty to use the word HELP and made an acrostic.
Last week’s post, Consider the Source, will give more context as to why I am writing about help.
I would recommend reading that one so what follows will make more sense. Click here.
When God helps us, He does not always use the same methods. If you read the Old Testament, God was super-creative in how He would spare the children of Israel.
For us, that same supernatural creativity has not been exhausted.
The first Help He gives is the Holy Spirit.
Here is verse 7 from John 16: “7But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.” NIV
Let’s focus on that word, Advocate. If we look a little deeper, we can get a grasp on its meaning.
In a broad sense, think helper, aide, or assistant. The Holy Spirit would replace Jesus. It was his role to lead the apostles (and us-by extension) into a deeper knowledge of God and His truth, and also to provide divine strength when undergoing temptations or persecution.
Trials and tribulations were never meant to be removed but endured. God would not allow us to go up against something alone. He knew we are only frail humans.
But with His help, the Holy Spirit, we can be over-comers! Romans 8 gives us that title.
Volumes upon volumes have been written about the Holy Spirit. Various doctrines center around the third person of the Trinity.
I am not writing on behalf of a specific church or denomination.
I am trying to interpret God’s Word accurately.
And if I am correct, which, by the way, I am confident that I am, the Holy Spirit is right beside me every step along this journey of life.
He is also right by your side.
Let’s continue to walk in stride with Him.
H – Holy Spirit
Call on Him today and enjoy this first Help of God. Good night!
